Are waterproof jackets breathable?
The higher the intensity of activity you are planning to do, the more moisture vapour you are likely to generate and therefore you will want your waterproof jacket to be more breathable. For highly aerobic activities we would recommend you look at the ultra-breathable Hydroshell Air or Gore-Tex Active fabrics.
Do waterproof jackets lose their waterproof?
Over time, rain jackets can lose their water-repellency. Waterproofing doesn’t last forever. Most times, it’s dirt and crud that are covering the water-repellent coating, making your jacket soak up water.
Why does my rain jacket get wet inside?
The leading causes of wetness inside your rain jacket are condensation and perspiration. If the external surface of your rain jacket is cooler than its interior, the water vapor will condense on the inside your jacket and make your clothes wet. Perspiration also produces water vapor and condenses by the same process.
Is Gore-Tex 100% waterproof?
